I was shocked when I heard this. There must be something more than dementia. When I heard he entered hospice care from complications from dementia, I figured he still had some time left. He was just in public earlier this year at a ball game I believe. To pass so rapidly from simply dementia, it just doesn't make much sense. Never mind he was only 76.
Regardless, a true loss to the world of baseball. Never mind that, a true loss to the world in general. He seemed like from all reports he was a truly great man.
